Recommended URLs for online databases

When including the URL or internet address in a reference for an article from a fulltext database, always use the URL for where you find the specific reference. For example, Single Search - the main search box on the Camosun Library homepage - does not house any books or articles. Instead it provides you a path to where you can find specific references. The Camosun College Library & your instructors recommend using the following list of URLs:
